…on Mother’s day.
I love you Nancy Jo!
Yesterday we had our last quilting day until September. (sad) We take June, July, and August off, as life gets so busy in the summer. Margaret and Kate still hadn’t had a turn to choose a fat quarter color, or to teach a block, so they both taught a block. Margaret taught us the Spinning Star block, and she chose yellow as her color for fat quarters.
Aren’t they pretty?
Cheryl (Cheryl’s Teapots2Quilting blog), an online friend I ‘met’ through blogging, was traveling this week, and was willing to ‘take a detour’ to see me, so we arranged to meet in person. I took a vacation day from work and we had a VERY nice visit! She gave up four hours of her time just for me! The weather was beautiful! It was sunny, and 82*. It was a bit windy, but we were inside most of the time. We went to Flapjack’s just before noon, ordered for us all, then Louie met us at noon to eat, just a minute or two after they delivered our food. We had enough time for us all to go back to our house before Louie needed to go back to work, and he snapped this picture for us after we all got back from lunch.
I have wanted to make a hanging scrap bag for my quilter ever since I got the idea for it, and that was a few months ago. I just hadn’t found the time, but today all I did was sew! It was kind of nice. I like how it turned out! My friend Kate gave me the fabric several months ago, and I have been itchin’ to make something with it. It is so cute and cheerful!
